Here's a beautiful, hand crafted piece made from Box Elder, a seldom seen variety of maple. This was made from a locally harvested tree that was milled and dried for 8 years before working the wood. It has beautiful figuring, both the striations of curly maple and the unique red streaking found only in box elder. The front edge is of course a "live edge", showing the natural edge of the log with only the bark removed. It is approx 6 feet long, with 2 brackets made from the same box elder tree. The mantle is mounted to the wall via 2 screws that will be placed into studs or the fireplace surround spaced 48" apart. I can offer delivery and installation within 25 miles of an additional $50. This would look beautiful in any mountain home or cabin, either as an accent shelf or when used as a mantle.
